They should be here

at any second. I promise.

- Are you kidding me, people!

Sara! Sara, do something!

Oh, look! I just got

an I.M. From Miss Braden.

And it says she's doing

some final touches...

on an extra special presentation

for you, and she'll be right here.


Do you know how much Downtown

Masquerade Records made last year?

Yes. 507 million, gross.

Therefore, you know how much each

and every minute of my time is worth.


Damn, that's a lot of money.

I didn't expect that.

Yeah, and that includes

the time that you're sleeping.

So even when I go poo-poo,

I'm makin' money?

- That's some expensive shit.

- Damn skippy.

So you see why I can't afford

- No, no. We're done.

- Damon, please. The elevator was stuck.

What are you talking about? Miss Albright

just pitched me your entire P.R. Strategy.

It's brilliant. Especially

the part about the party.

Oh. A p-party?

Yeah, the masquerade

bash thing. I love it.

- Oh, you-you like that?

- Yeah.

It's a great way to showcase our talent and

get a tax write-off and support a good cause.

And you know I can never
